Ubiquitous problem: Save as > file type list is way too long

When you try to export a file using save as, the list of file types is ridiculously long.  The list includes every single possible export format, so I have to sift through 35 esoteric file types to find STL or Parasolid which I use most of the time.

 

I would love to hide all the stuff I don't use somehow, does anyone have ideas for this?  I tried googling but couldn't find anything good on this topic.  Would be great if I could re-order so my favorites display first, then the others below.  I would be satisfied to just figure out a registry hack and permanently remove some of them though.

 

Of course this is a problem with almost every program where you can save to lots of different file types whether it be on a PC or a MAC.  I have the same problem with graphic design software with the myriad of image formats.  I wonder if anyone else has figured out a solution to this.
